Maun is a busy place, at certain times of the year good accommodation is hard to find. We were a group of 6 traveling through Botswana - Gaborone to Ghanzi (Ghanzi Trailblazers) to see the bushmen hunting and dancing, then to Maun....where our preferred accommodation was fully booked on the dates we required. The Old Bridge Backpackers recommended Discovery B... More

Okavango Delta is rather expensive, and we booked Discovery B&B under value for money considerations. And this excactly is it. Rather basic, but really ok, you just need to know what to expect. The owner Marie is very helpful, with some rustic charme. I would recommend to have a car available, we've been there without and felt a little bit... More

Ten of us stayed at Discovery for a night prior to starting our safari. Two of us had done this 2 years ago and found it took the worry out of - will our flight from Joburg arrive on time for the transfer to the Delta? The managers helped us with luggage transfer from the airport and welcomed us warmly.... More

A group of us rented three rooms at the end of our two weeks' trip of camping in Moremi Game Reserve. The rooms are basic but they do have a sense of flair. The breakfast wAs ok, nothing to write home about. The best part was talking with the nice young Dutch couple, the owners, who took a risk and... More

Immediately driving into Maun, we loved the place. We stopped at the tourist office and they could not have been more friendly. Unfortunately, we were not so buoyed up on arriving at the Discovery B&B, especially after reading so many glowing reports on TripAdvisor! The room was very small, with precious little space to put clothes. The bathroom, such as... More

We stayed at Discovery B&B before and after our trip in the Okavango. It is located a few km out of Maun but you can arrange with the hosts to be picked up. We loved our accommodation, a rondavel which was tastefully decorated and had a beautiful hand basin inside. It was fun having a shower outside but may not... More

If you are looking for a place to stop over with no fanfare, restaurant, bar facilities or fuss, but a safe, value for money, peaceful forest type environment, with very comfortable rooms, superb ablutions, and very warm & friendly service, then look no further, this is the place for you. We stayed there for two nights during August 2014 and... More

Rene and Marie are absolutely fantastic hosts. We always stay here when we're in Maun, which is a relief after years of looking for decent places in town. We were so thankful when they opened up. There are various kinds of rooms at Discovery, including rondavels, and all are nicely maintained, clean, quiet, and comfortable. If you request dinner, what... More

A huge recommendation for Discovery. Beautiful, thoughtfully and creatively designed individual rooms in thatched huts. All mod cons (no internet though - but available close by), great showers, some outside the hut, firm beds and delightful washbasins. Very friendly owner, Maria from Holland, usually full so book ahead. Wonderful.

We stayed here about a month ago, after an amazing BushWays Safari, and prior to leaving the next day for Madagascar. We wish we would have had more time there. It was peaceful, beautiful and relaxing. The breakfast was good and the owners were so accomodating. They responded promptly to all my emails and let us watch the "World cup... More
